A Country Mile

A Country Mile

An old friend of mine, who still lives in country Victoria, was running a fundraiser. She was selling fudge to raise money for Down Syndrome Victoria. I was keen to support but my friend lived nearly three hours away. When I was chatting to her she mentioned she was coming to Melbourne and could drop…

Sing Out Loud

Sing Out Loud

Professional singer, Claire Bowditch recently said: “Everyone can sing. Sorry – it’s the truth. If you can talk, you can sing. I’ve spent the last decade of my working career proving this to my audiences: whether it’s in the Opera House, or the community hall, when we stand together in a group, we can sing….

Cement For Good

Today we had some cement poured on our property. As we’re building an extension they have put a slab down in order to build the frame. It was with much excitement that our four year old watched the pink cement mixer arrive at our home. I’ve had cement splattered on my car before. It was…

When I thought about it I realised it was some baby paracetamol and $70 cash out. Having a lifetime supply of baby paracetamol might be good for the…

Time To Roll Over

Time To Roll Over

My son has struggled to learn to roll over. While most babies his age are rolling left and right, my son just likes to sit. His sitting posture is beautiful and straight, however, there are key developmental processes in him learning to roll. We try to play with him on the floor to encourage his…

Don’t Waste The Paste

Don't Waste The Paste

I’m quite frugal with my money. So when it comes to toothpaste I try to get every little bit of paste out of the tube. I’ll start off by squeezing the bottom of the tube. Then I’ll run my fingers up the tube making sure every bit of paste is up the top. Then, over…
